The fi fth stated mdeting of the Hamburg
Teachers' Institute was hold on Monday
evening• last, in the High School •roorn.
After' the usual preliminary
• was disposed of, the Critic'sned was in .
Order, and Was road by Miss' Miller;
whose shafts of criticism Wore gracefully
acknewledged by those at whim they
wore , directed. A lecture on Elocution
was next announced, but the lecturer
being absent, the subject was. taken Up
and dlsooursed upon by several ,of the
teachers. One of the speakers A:narked:
that, in the grade in which ho was la
boring, ho found it necessary to gliveel
moot his entire attention to the assist
ance of the pupils in Mb prdnuttellition,
of the words, let alone, stress, emphasis,
modulation and definitions: Another
speaker thought more , attention should
be given to 'defining words In the reading
lesson, In the !Myer, grades.
A lecture then followed on, phonetic
spelling, which was instruttiVe and•ln4 ,
ten:sating, and must have irnprissed all
presCnt with the idea that in order
come a good reader, a thorough know
ledge of that subject is necessary.
, A recitation hi Geography was next in
'ideti Tho teacher distributed a nutn
her of questions on slips'Of paper among
the class, after which she called upon the
Inombors promiscuously for answer,
when a ratribling discussion followed on
the subject, °non member fooling at liber
ty to discourse on it, without , any appa
restraint,,untll the . President gave
notice of another lecture on mental arith- '
metic, when the subject was dismissed,
and, the looturckprooeeded with.
The lecturer dwelt upon the Impor
tance of tho subjoot generally.' 'I As a
means of disciplining the mind, and 'mak
ing ready reckoners, it •is invaluablei?'
and presented several, methods of-tench- .
Ing it.
This dorio, the President distributed.

questions, to be answered at. the. next

Lectures have been delivered through—
out the whole township in all the schools.
The Lectures aro generally delivered by
Mr. G. M. Webber and Dr. A. Smith.
It Seems Very impressive-to teachers and
scholars, to give them a hearty. address.
Ilre found that in all instances it enlivened
thorn more or less. '
The Directors, atter driving awhile,
Ivey°, cordially invited to take a hygeinic
dinner with Dr. A. Smith. We all en
joyed an excellent dinner. After having
finished our repast, a few brief remarks

at the Station House last night. He says,
everything is very quiet, but that tho

The Captain's quiet but cheerful face
wore an unusually sad expression this
morning. He fears that our now moon
may wax and wano, and other moons do
the same, and yet police circles will re
main dull. Ills trusty Lieutenant, big
Dick (beg your pardon, for 'being so fa

laugh for nigh unto throo days, and wc),
begin to foar.for' thoso hugo sides of his.
The PoliewHeadquarters would be cheer
less enough without the broad face and
beaming countonanco of Dick. His pros
enco is always sure to drivo away an at
tack of the blue devils, or any other kind
of devils, that occasionally seize hold of
a follow of a convivial turn of mind.
Dick is a trump. But still with all such
pharming attributes, DieVa magnetic

Extract of a teller from REV. RICHARD S.
Eass, of B often, Nan.:
"For years I was a cuff 'rer from Bolls,
so that my life became weitrlsomo through
their frequent quent andfporsistent recur
rence; finally a carbuncle formed iii the
small of my back. During its progress
largo pieces of decomposed flesh wore
every day or two cat away, and the pros
tration and general disturbance of the
system wore great. Before I had reeov
ered from this attack two smaller carbun
cles broke out higher up, and 1 was again
threatened with a neurone() of the suf.
firings to which I had so long been sub
eeted. it was at this time I commenced
taking the PERUVIAN SYRUP. I contin
nod taking it until I had used live bottles;
since then I bate have had nothing of the
kind, for years I was ono of the greatest
sufferers. Other medicines gave mo partial
and temporary relief, but this remarkable
remedy, with a kind of intuitive sense,
wont directly to the root of the evil, and
did Its work with a thoroughness worthy
of its established clinraoter.”
